    • Please note, due to periods of heavy rainfalls in the catchment area upstream, the River Ouse in York can occasionally rise to levels which can have an impact on daily operations. Sailing will only be attempted as long as it’s safe. If indeed the water is too high for the boat to sail underneath the bridges, even for our smallest boat, sailing will be unattainable. In the event of such described occurrences, you will receive a full refund or you can use your ticket(s) on another date during your stay
    • This experience requires good weather. If it’s canceled due to poor weather, you’ll be offered a different date or a full refund

    Captain Kris was brilliant - very friendly, knowledgeable and fun. He and his colleague (Rebecca?) did an amazing job of serving a full boatload of tourists with a minimum of fuss and delay. I found Kris' commentary interesting and entertaining - I learnt a number of new facts

    Nice boat and friendly crew but I was split between a 3 or 4 rating. The cruise itself is very pleasant sailing up and down the beautiful Yorkshire Countryside but whilst the content was well delivered I found the historic side limited. If you want a nice cruise up the river
